There is no age restriction in the rules though. It's possible that the parts will be sent out directly since this month's winner is under 18. There is just no way he can open up a PayPal account due to being under 18. Well we want to see the winner's build log anyway and I need to revise my contest rig when Haswell is out.
No but there's age restriction in real life
Meaning UPS,Fedex,DHL won't let a 13 year old sign for a package nor will Paypal let a 13 year old receive $2500.
Sure the contest doesn't but the internet still takes place in real life.
(yes his dad can, just defeats the point of this "rule" or "prize")

contact the dictionary.com there is good opinions, bad opinions, at the end of the day opinions and facts are two seperate things.
facts trumping opinions have nothing to do with the FACT you can have a opinion that isn't backed by factEdited by INCREDIBLEHULK - 5/5/13 at 5:25pm
